… rules, regulations, policies, procedures and bylaws. In short, I’m close to saying that I hate it. The church advocated for slavery, segregation, eugenics and genocide and fails to reconcile with its involvement. I especially take issue with the church’s desire to police others through the shadow of politics. That feels antithetical to what I know.
The Church also savagely brands LGBTQ people as literally “depraved, disordered, and morally evil.” In the catechism. To hundreds of millions of children every day around the world.
This is something else that a huge majority of US Catholics disagree with. Yet Church leadership continues to push horrifying levels of disrespect and stigmatization of harmless, innocent people.
